BSL3/3+ transboundary animal diseases course at FLI

       A9 courseFrom 13-15 May 2019, the ESRs learned how research is done at the brand new high containment facilities of FLI.  In the 3-day-training in “BSL3/3+ transboundary animal diseases” the ESRs tried to shoot the blowpipe and were shown how to swab chicken or blood sample cattle. The presentations focused on the requirements of pathogenesis studies with animal diseases such as African swine fever or rabies, but also dealt with the animal welfare legislation, trial planning, the 3R-concept, biosafety, animal handling and the animal’s requirements with a special focus on livestock (cattle, goat, sheep, pigs, poultry) or more exotic experimental animals (wild boar, foxes).
